Derek Johnson Going Pro: Will Run Cubs' Minor League Pitching Coordinator

I know we haven't exactly been "on-top" of covering Vanderbilt sports lately, but this was a story that isn't likely to attract a lot of attention.  According to Baseball America, Associate Head Coach Derek Johnson is leaving the Commodore program to become the pitching coordinator for the Cubs' minor league system.  The Commodores are projected to make another run at Omaha and the College World Series in 2013 and the loss of Johnson will likely be felt this season and in the years to come.  Johnson has helped build one of the most dominating pitching staff's in all of college baseball over the last decade and will be sorely missed.  The VSL Braintrust congratulates Coach Johnson on his move and wishes him all the best in the future.

We now return to not covering Vanderbilt sports in an acceptable manner.
